A Specific Article

To track down a specific article, use the Citation Linker, which locates the full text of an article when you already have the citation information.

Note: you'll need to have a complete citation for the best results.  Citation elements include: author(s) and title of the article, journal title, volume (and issue or no. if listed), and the page numbers of the article.  Tip: journal and book titles are italized, which can help to easily separate the article title of the article from the journal title (i.e. Lamadrid, Enrique R. "The rogue's progress: Journeys of the Picaro from oral tradition to contemporary Chicano.." MELUS 20.2 (1995): 15.)


Full-Text of an Article

If the library does not have the full text article online or in print, you may request it through interlibrary loan service, ILLiad.  All currently enrolled students, faculty and staff of Mount Holyoke College may use this service for FREE.  If you've never used ILLiad before you'll need to sign up for an account.  Note: Plan ahead and allow 2 weeks for ILL requests to be filled.

A Specific Journal (online)


E-Journal Locator - a tool to connect you with our online journals.  

A Specific Journal (in print)

The library has both online journals and print journals.  If the journal is not online, see if we might have it in print:

Library Catalog - search by "Journal title keywords" and put in the name of the journal. This will check our catalog for any print (and some online) subscriptions.  Current journal issues are on the 4th floor of Williston Library in the Reading Room.  Older journal issues are on level 2 (sciences) and 2 1/2 (humanities and social sciences) and are shelved alphabetically by title.
